  • Let's get stuck into the FRUIT



    Currently getting through about a pound of these a day as they're all dead juicy right now. Called paraguayos here, but I think I saw them in the UK as Chinese peaches



    Also shoved my face right into this the other day and noshed away, rather than cutting polite slices. Brilliant.

    Fig season soon. Yay!

    What fruit are you eating?

    I saw a box of these Peaches on Saturday at the Wholesalers in Fenham, they had them marked as 'Donut Peaches'.

    We bought a box of over 100 Granny Smiths apples , £3.80, which is close enough for a .

          Actually i paid 18p for two fairtrade bananas this morning, which is a bit mad if you consider a chocolate bar is like 60p minimum and the bananas have traveled from the other side of the globe.

                Those are pretty disappointing, I'm afraid, although they may appeal to kiwi fans in search of another bland and slightly unpleasant fruit.

                Chris Tanton, editor of the Fruit Grower magazine, said he thought the Limelon was a good idea.

                “It is an interesting diversion,” he added.

                “A melon is a nice fruit to eat, but it’s not intensely flavoured.


                Chris Tanton doesn't know what he's on about, A proper ripe sweet melon is among the most intensely flavoured fruits that exists.

                Anyone got any durian stories? I've never tried one, but it's well up my list.

                Baby figs and vanilla ice cream yesterday. Oh yes.

                  An aquired taste for sure... A friend of mine spent a year teaching in Thailand and used to really enjoy not only eating them but encouraging others to taste them too.

                  My abiding memory of the experience was that I couldn't spit it out quick enough, and was left thinking what could possibly persuade a sane mind to put that in their mouth? I mean the small is surely warning enough. Still, they are extremely popular in SE Asia - The king of fruits, aparently.

                  From Wiki:

                  "The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, and has been described variously as tert-Butylthiol, almonds, rotten onions, turpentine and gym socks."

                  Anthony Bourdain, a lover of durian, relates his encounter with the fruit thus: "Its taste can only be described as...indescribable, something you will either love or despise. ...Your breath will smell as if you'd been French-kissing your dead grandmother".

                  Travel and food writer Richard Sterling says: “... its odor is best described as pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away. Despite its great local popularity, the raw fruit is forbidden from some establishments such as hotels, subways and airports, including public transportation in Southeast Asia.”

                  Other comparisons have been made with the civet, sewage, stale vomit, skunk spray and used surgical swabs.


                  Personally as far as fruit goes you can't beat a juicy ripe melon, and I have to declare an absolute devotion to avocados, if that's actually a fruit.

                        I found a small ripe wild melon on a walk here a couple of years ago and bore it home in triumph.
                        I cut it, carved out a chunk and stuck it in my mouth to find it was the bitterest thing I've ever tasted. Like that stuff my mum put on my nails to stop me biting them, only worse. It took half a day to get rid of the flavour.
                        Avoid wild melons.

                          Proustian rush on that one. I've got news for you, Mum - I STILL bite my nails, and I'm 44. I'll NEVER stop.

                          Anyway, my lifelong love affair with the pineapple continues. My corer is in use constantly.

                            Me neither. The nail paint only fostered a later appreciation for endives and radiccio.
